The Osu Band - Light My Fire/merry Go Round

Recommended Posts

The Osu Band - Test Pressing - Merry Go Round / Light My Fire - XAKA 2.


The record is VG+ with some surface noise in the first couple of grooves.


Please make an offer.






"In 1983, Sakyi, together with versatile musicians velvety voiced singer Ashitey de Luv, bassist Bibi Dowuona-Hammond, guitarist Aweke Glymin and drummer Joel Jacobus, formed the OSU band, performed several live jazz oriented shows in clubs like Keteke, Black Ceasar, Impulse, etc. and later left for London, UK, where they teamed up with Osibisa’s Alfred Bannerman and Emmanuel Rentzos under the SHAKA Records label and recorded and released “Merry Go Round/Light Up My Fire”.

This hard funk single made huge waves in the UK, beating Eddy Grant’s “Romancing the Stone” and Imagination's “Illusion” in the prestigious Blues and Soul chart ratings. This phenomenal OSU single featured American top ten artistes, Princess on guest vocals, international percussionist Francis Forster (Paul Simon), virtuoso saxophonists George Lee and Ray Allen, and several others."
